This study investigates the application of night ventilation techniques in ten urban canyons, situated in the extended region of Athens, Greece.
Geros V, Santamouris M, Guarracino G
In the framework of SOLVENT project, work was carried out to develop strategies and dissemination material to assist the efficient application of solar and passive ventilation in urban buildings.
Kolokotroni M, Santamouris M, Allard F, Chiaus C, Alvarez S, Palmer J
The Building Regulations with regard to the energy performance of buildings in the Netherlands is an attempt to a performance oriented requirement in conjunction with a test standard. The test standard in fact means a calculation procedure.

The International Space Station (ISS) is the biggest multinational space program ever with 16 countries involved. Since November 2000 the station is permanently occupied with a crew of 3 astronauts.

In urban areas, people stand the most of their time in indoor environment. In this context, indoor air quality is more and more a subject of concern. Outdoor air quality can have a large impact on indoor air quality.
Collignan B, Flori J P, Kirchner S, le Moullec Y, Villenave J
The main problem in natural ventilation is that its efficiency depends very tightly on the meteorological conditions : high wind velocity and outside temperature lower than inside are optimal conditions for efficient ventilation.
Berthin S
Increased global warming and deterioration of the ozone layer have stimulated interest in the use of renewable energy systems.
Elmualim A, Awbi H
It is expected that there will be in 2003 an energy performance regulation for the Flemish Region. In the framework of the VLIET-EPIGOON project, a proposal for such legislation is under preparation.
Wouters P, van Orshoven D, Vandaele L, Schietecat J
We investigate the airtightness of 12 French non-residential buildings, by means of experimental fan-depressurization tests.
Litvak A, Boze D, Kilberger M
Earth-air heat exchangers can be used to reduce energy consumption in building ventilation systems. The idea is to pre-heat air in winter and pre-cool air in summer using the thermal capacity of the soil.
de Paepe M
Air filters may be used to reduce indoor airborne concentration which is one of the main indoor air pollutants. Air filters performances have to be measured in order to be able to select the right product for a given application.
Ginestet A, Pugnet D, Salazar J H, Grange P
In this paper, measurement and simulation results are presented that demonstrate the energy performance of a recently built ecological house in Helsinki, Finland.
Simonson C
Energy Performance standardisation and legislation is receiving an increased interest in many countries.
Wouters P, Porrez J, van Orshoven D, Vandaele L
This paper illustrates the airtightness and ventilation performance of a recently built ecological house in Helsinki, Finland.
Simonson C
The performance of a Ventilated wall component under real weather conditions was tested, during two weather seasons, winter and summer.
Dimoudi A, Androutsopoulos A, Lykodis S
A potential conflict may exist between energy saving and good indoor climate.
Afshari A, Bergsoe N
The paper reviewed the supply opening models of describing inlet boundary conditions for indoor airflow simulation firstly. Then examples of isothermal free air jets from a grille are presented to validate full representation of supply openings.
Zhao B, Li X, Yan Q
In this study a parametric analysis was carried out of the interaction between louvres and various perforated mesh screens. This type of arrangement is common in through-the-wall ventilators used for natural ventilation in buildings.
Sharples S, Chilengwe N
This paper briefly exams the role of the building envelope in determining the internal environmental conditions in buildings and the scope for holistic design of building services and building envelope.
